Occupy-- please go home!

So let me get this right…the Occupy people—

They want freedom to speak and act as they wish—but they dishonor then men and women fighting to defend their right to enjoy it.

They want equal access as long as they do not have to give it-- just ask them to leave the areas they are illegally squatting on.

They want everyone to have an equal share—but they can’t even share their food with homeless people—“How dare they take what we worked so long to get together and prepare.” How IRONIC is that!?
They want a share of the corporate pie but do not want to contribute a financial stake in the company just reap the profitable reward for their paid labor.

They want to take out loans for an education, get the education, and then cry when they have to pay back the money they borrowed for an education they received.

They profess peaceful protest—yet a dead man was found within their camp and they didn’t even notify anyone, another shot himself and the emergency personnel were blocked to get to his aid by other Occupy demonstrators, a rare strain of TB has broken out within the ranks in one of their camps and is getting so bad the health officials are calling it an outbreak, another camp poses a public threat because of the rampant STD’s being transmitted, and theft, robbery, and rape crimes have gone up in all of the areas they occupy.
They cry out against the injustices happening to the “little man”—yet their determination to holdout and occupy means they are putting local mom and pop shops out of business because their customers are too afraid to do business where the Occupy demonstrations are— and can we blame them!?
They want to lay around, living off the backs of the working class and then cry that they aren't getting enough.

They have an agenda and are not leaving until they get what they want—seems like they have no real agenda at all and they claim the Tea Party was worse. ? That the Tea Party is actually the bad guy.

Really? You gotta be kidding me!

The Tea Party came, rallied, set an agenda, reached a consensus and went about establishing a respectable organization that is striving to change what they do not like. There were no out of control mobs, no rare outbreaks of TB, no rampant STD’s running amuck, no dead people lying in their mists, no shootings, no thefts, no robberies, no rapes, no businesses had to close down, and no veterans had to be dishonored.

I cannot spend another iota of my time on your foolish games— I am a busy working, single mother who is putting myself through college, paying my fair share of taxes, struggling to make ends meet, raising my son and putting him through college, I live without insurance, and do not live off the backs of anyone else. I may not have all I desire right now, but at least I can take pride in what I do have and the accomplishments I continue to make.

So here’s my FREE $0.03 worth

Stop your senseless belly aching, pull up your big girl panties, wipe your nose, apologize to our veterans and those you ran out of business as well as those who have been injured, stop the stupidity train, go get a job because at this point even a job at McD’s is gonna help (considering you haven’t been working in months), become a productive member of the United States economy, carry your share of the load, and pay your taxes… maybe THEN we’ll have something worth discussing.
Until then, stop saying you are representing all Americans because it is obvious you only represent those who wish to have a free ride. Nuff said!


All I can add is.."Well said!"
The following has been attributed to State Representative Mitchell Kaye from GA; this guy should run for President one day...


"We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional. We hold these truths to be self-evident: that a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim they require a Bill of NON-Rights."

ARTICLE I: You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV, or any other form of wealth.
More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.

ARTICLE II: You do not have the right to never be offended.
This country is based on freedom, and that means freedom for everyone -- not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc; but the world is full of idiots, and probably always will be.

ARTICLE III: You do not have the right to be free from harm.
If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful; do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.

ARTICLE IV: You do not have the right to free food and housing.
Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes.

ARTICLE V: You do not have the right to free health care.
That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we're just not interested in public health care.

ARTICLE VI: You do not have the right to physically harm other people.
If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don't be surprised if the rest of us want to see you fry in the electric chair.

ARTICLE VII: You do not have the right to the possessions of others.
If you rob, cheat, or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don't be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still won't have the right to a big screen color TV or a life of leisure.

ARTICLE VIII: You do not have the right to a job.
All of us sure want you to have a job, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful. (AMEN!)
(Added by MChannon: If you get financing for your education, you will repay the loans yourself- you’re the one that got the loans and the education.)

ARTICLE IX: You do not have the right to happiness.
Being an American means that you have the right to PURSUE happiness, which by the way, is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an overabundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.

ARTICLE X: This is an English speaking country.
We don't care where you are from, English is our language. Learn it or go back to wherever you came from! (Lastly.....)

ARTICLE XI: You do not have the right to change our country's history or heritage.
This country was founded on the belief in one true God. And yet, you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or no faith at all; with no fear of persecution. The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage and history, and if you are uncomfortable with it, TOUGH!”

If you agree, share this with a friend. No, you don't have to, and nothing tragic will befall you if you don't. I just think it's about time common sense is allowed to flourish. Sensible people of the United States speak out because if you do not, who will?
